nope i'm not takeing anything off. i bought the car for 8k it cost 11k to fix it i am goin to ask for 9k or make them fix it. if i take the wheels off i would get nothing. i am getting atleast 8.6k for all the add ons that i lost or will be loseing. but i have another car in the looks so its all good. the guy is asking 7k for a GSR and with the other 2k i have i am thinking about building the engin and adding turbo i can do that for aron 2k can't iPrlude4Life said:u gona take off whats stil good and try to sell it? i was moreso thinkin about just the wheels cuz they look like there in pretty good shape.
I'm not crazy the insurence price before the quote that my insurece comp. gave me was 7k. and since my car is fixable it will cost 11k to fix so they either pay me 9k or fix it. my mom works with my insurence company and says they do have to pay me for the total of the car i paid wich was 8k and i had 700 in add ons that were damaged. so i can get 9k for it its all in knowing what to do from the inside. i will go to court for it and they will have to pay the court bill when they lose.4bidden said:If you think insurance is going to pay you 11k you are dreaminggggg. If you think insurance is even goin to pay you 8.6k you are still crazy. Value on that car is only $5500 or so and that is with low miles.
I say you get $7 if you are LUCKY!
read priaer statement. my mom works at an insurece company i know what i can and can't do and get. the car is repairable and since the wreck is not my falt i have leverage trust me i know. i will get what i lost. even if i have to take it to court because i know the judge and my i don't have a speeding ticket or have had a wreck before. its good to have friends in all the right places. so please people stop telling me what i can do i know what i can do here. and check out nada thats what the insurece company uses. the valuse there is 6655.h22lude said:they wouldn't pay you $11000 to fix it, because it isn't worth that much. that is the whole point of the insurance company totalling a car, so they only have to pay for what its worth. If its worth 6000, they will pay up to 6000 to have it repaired, or if it costs more, they will "total" it and you will get 6000.

i am not threting to take them to court till the time comes. i will see what my insurece company will offer me then they will go through court with them.SpecalK said:i would not threaten then by taken them to court until your full and ready to. The insurance company has money and since they have moeny they have there own legal counsel full time.
Since i work in a bodyshop ive seen customers do this all the time and being my mom worked for state farm i can tell you that you would need a very strong care if you wish to get any where.
Once you tell them your taken you to court they will cut all contact with you most likely and they will tell you for now on your lawyer will need to contact there lawyer for now on. since its not your fault and if its not your insurance company then they will not drop you but if its the same company most likely they will drop you. Heres the kicker and this is where everyone gives up, the insurance company will drag this out for as long as they can and your lawyer bill will climb. ive seen it go for 2 years and the people give up and side with the insurance company. since they have money they can do it.
Its like the we say so system, to drive you have to have insurance, no insurance no drive. there in control.
This is most likely what there going to do is look at simular sales of your type and color of car and year miles and condition and compare that to blue book value and thats what you get. if you have proof of purchace on aftermarket upgrades then you might be able to get a refund. Id like to see you win this but i know what im talking about, they deal with situations like this on a daily basis, there ready 4u, they know what to do, do you?
but if you do go with them and total it out you should buy the car back from them and sell it to me or someone, when they give the check you can buy the car back from then cheaply and make more money off of it.
dude read what i wrote i am getting the money from my insurence company. i have to take a 500$ deductable but will get it back by december. i will be getting my money monday afternoon or tuseday morring. FROM MY INSURCE COMPANY.SpecalK said:dude stat farm does not let anyone tell them what to do it will take more than dec for them to settle up with them and in most case they will just write it off or hope that you have forgoten that you still be getting money
